Here’s what happened.

According to The Daily Wire, Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler attacked a reporter after he was asked if Portland “set the stage” for violence at the U.S. Capitol.

“Last week, we watched as pro-Trump supporters broke into the U.S. Capitol; the insurrection was unlike anything this country has ever seen,” KATU2 News reporter Genevieve Reaume said to Wheeler. “But just three weeks ago, protesters broke into the Oregon State Capitol. I have heard people at these protests elsewhere saying, ‘Well, they let it happen in Portland, so why not do it here?’”

“It seems, in some way, the actions of these small groups (of protesters) that you’re referring to, have set the stage for what has happened on a state level, and potentially a national level.”

“Are you blaming me for what happened at the U.S. Capitol,” Wheeler asked while cocking his head in ostensible disbelief. “I don’t buy that premise, at all.” You can read the full article here.
